Our mission is deeply rooted in our core values, established in 1930 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange: Dignity, Service, Excellence and Justice. We are committed to bringing these values to every aspect of care for patients living with life-limiting illnesses. We embrace a family-centered approach for the physical, emotional and spiritual care of patients. This special form of comfort care is provided to patients in their home, extended care or skilled nursing facility and, at times, in a hospital setting.
